The Frost used to be the best place to go but since they started giving out
drink cards like crazy its turned to crap. It was quality. Now its skanky.

surprised. Still am not over the place.
Cazz, Blackburn, Sun Jan 30 23:17:59 2005

chocolate moose, st kilda, Mon Dec 27 19:00:54 2004
great music, can dance all night
Laura, Seymour, Sun Dec 12 21:55:36 2004
It's good since there are usually only a few losers of the Crown-Heat et al
Sadly, it seems that their numbers have been on the increase lately (probably
because the tough door-lady doesn't work there anymore...and boy did she do an
excellent job of making sure they stayed out)...
rocco, Fri Dec 10 13:43:33 2004
i really like the alcoholic slurpies, i think they are a great idea that i have
never seen before, with the summer hard card it is also a bit cheaper then
other places
ren, maffra, Wed Dec 8 02:52:49 2004
Frostbites is excellent!! I've been there
a good few times now and everytime it
just gets better!! The music is good and
the frostbites are deadly. Check it out
Tara, Burwood, Sun Dec 5 16:04:49 2004
Went there last Saturday week and rated it. Rated it A LOT! Thought the crowd
was awesome, they were well-dressed, in good party moods and didn't come across
one person who thought they were over and above anybody else. The slurpees get
you fair dinkum pissed which means it was a relatively cheap night. No sign of
anyone with the word skank written on them. Crowd a little bit older than
myself and those I was with but didn't have any concerns over this at all -
everybody having a good night. Excellent music.
Bozza, Eltham, Sun Nov 21 22:01:19 2004
music and good music and a fun place to be at.
Michael, Noble Park, Fri Nov 12 07:24:40 2004
LOL, Brad, I think we all appreciate your honesty! ... Us chicks will need to
keep an eye open...haha
Polly, Down Town :), Thu Oct 21 18:16:01 2004

Alana, Melbourne, Tue Oct 5 22:58:00 2004
GREAT drinks, good music, good location
Nicola, Hoppers Crossing, Sat Oct 2 02:59:45 2004
There are always heaps of really cute guys there! The music is the best of
Kristy, Mon Sep 27 03:08:57 2004

Joined the boys at Frosties on Saturday. It was packed! Not a bad crowd at all.
I still love the guy/girl next door type crowd at Frosties. So do my mates. They
think its better since the Miss Chapel St thing finished because the ratio has
Amazingly, the place stopped at about 2.30, and the dancefloor cleared, as
everyone moved to the bar area to watch Grant Hackett win the 1500m. Big cheer
when he won. Good night.

Another big night at Frost Bites! on Saturday. Actually, the crowd was every bit
as big as it was last week for the grand final of Little Miss Chapel Street, but
it was a better sort of crowd and night all around. Its running pretty hot at
the moment and is definitely worth a look.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Thu Aug 12 04:17:56 2004
Swung by Frosties for the Grand Final of Little Miss Chapel St. It was
absolutely packed, and a good type of crowd too.
The crowd was mainly 18-27 year olds, 50-50 guys-girls, fun, friendly, well
dressed and well behaved. Music was commercial and party tunes. A good night.
The photos have been delayed a tiny touch, so please stay tuned and be patient.

Good crowd, bit quiet tonight though, and the slurpie things were awesome. This

that goes on in other clubs. The blonde chic who turned 22, Id like to say u

Gemma, Mckinnon, Mon Feb 16 03:22:53 2004
Dropped by Frost Bites for the Grand Final of the Little Black Dress
Extremely busy, and a pretty good looking crowd, especially once the girls from
the comp (who were mostly regulars) finished up and joined their friends.
DJ Sam Dred is now on stage playing favourites from all eras. Brett Lee was one
of the many faces in the crowd.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Thu Dec 18 07:57:37 2003

Max Moose, MaxMoose, Fri Dec 12 09:14:12 2003
Has anyone seen any of the girls that are going to be in the little black dress
competition this saturday?
Peter, malvern, Wed Dec 10 12:27:07 2003
I attended Frost Bites on a Sarturday night last week for my best mates b'day,
and found it quite refreshing. A very good atmosphere combined with very
friendly people made Frosties a very nice place to just relax and let go. (I
suppose the parade of beautiful women on the poduim may have also clouded my
judgement...just a little bit...)

It is very different, they play some of the best music, especially music that I
love. Their slurpies are the best and you can always count on having a great
night there.
Mel, Hurstbridge, Fri Oct 17 05:03:30 2003
It is a great night when you go in there, the drinks are fantastic and the
atmosphere is great. I enjoy it when we decide to go there.

Three of Frost Bites managers / celebrities celebrated their collective 100th
birthday. Happy birthday guys. They packed out the function room and overflowed
into the rest of the venue. Made it slightly older than their regular Saturday,
but it was a good night.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Mon Jun 16 03:57:59 2003
Frost Bites was huge on Saturday. It was just so busy inside, and, as normal,
was a fantastic sort of crowd.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Mon May 19 08:54:40 2003
Frosties was great on Saturday. Its more than back to its best on Saturdays. I
just love the fact that the crowd is friendly, relaxed, and very down-to-Earth.
Plenty of quality in the crowd. Classy but not pretentious.
It was packed, primarily aged 21-28, well dressed, and well behaved. The
dancefloor was busy too courtesy of a very commercial mix with plenty of
favourites thrown in.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Sun Apr 27 18:11:35 2003
Dropped by Frost Bites too late for a fair review, but the boys tell me it was a
great crowd. If Simon stayed past midnight (about 2.30), it must have been good.
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Mon Mar 31 18:36:12 2003
Its different, original drinks, relaxed atmosphere
Joanna, Rowville, Tue Mar 18 04:09:13 2003
One of the finest nights ever! Frosties has been back to its best in recent
weeks, and the GP weekend atmosphere just took it higher. GP dancers were good
too. ;)
Steve, Narre North, Tue Mar 11 01:12:58 2003
Most people have been saying Frosties is back to its best on Saturdays, and they
aren't wrong. Saturday was huge. Great type of crowd as always; friendly and
Max Moose, MaxMoose, Tue Feb 11 01:56:08 2003
Not a bad night at Frosties. A touch quieter than normal due to so many
Christmas Parties.

Frostbites, possibly the classiest pub in Melbourne, is a regular haunt of ours on a Sunday or Friday night. So when we had done all of our favourite Saturday nights to death, we thought we might venture to Frosties for a look. We arrived very early, before 9pm, but already, the first few were arriving for a very big night. It seemed to be fairly packed by about 10.30pm, and stays that way until about 2am.

The crowd is very classy and trendy. Without there being a particularly tough dress code, people choose to dress up anyway. Its not all the try-hard types, it tends to be more genuine and easy-going. On Saturday, the crowd is a touch older than the other nights, but the average age would still only be 25.

Frostbites kind of has four rooms. Downstairs is the bar room, complete with a huge bar serving those alcoholic slurpies, and lots of standing and seating room. Connected to that is the entertainment room. On other nights it has bands, but Saturdays is strictly DJ, playing top 40, and dance classics from all eras. There is a fairly big dancefloor, and a few podiums to dance on.

At the top of the stairs, which are located in the bar room, just right of the entry, you find a foyer area that overviews the dancefloor. There you will find a couple of video games, a couple of tables, and an entry to the function room. When this is not hosting a party, it is a quiet bar, with a few spots to sit.

The two bars usually have quite quick service, and the prices are fairly standard. Free entry is excellent value.

Frostbites is a great place to visit any night, and Saturday is no exception. It is the quality of the crowd that makes this venue. Whilst people go to a little bit of trouble to dress up, its nothing over the top or pretentious. Just a good crowd.
